AN HISTORIC windmill in York has been short-listed for a national award.
The Biffa Awards recognise the people who transform their communities, and Holgate Windmill, pictured, has been selected from almost 100 applicants in the Cultural Facilities category.
The windmill’s preservation society received over £40,000 in funding from Biffa Award to complete the final stages of the restoration, and install safety fencing and shutter frames.
The windmill is one of four sites to be shortlisted for the award, and the winner, to be announced at a ceremony in Kent on September 27, will receive a £2,000 prize.
